Over the past five years, our MA in Digital Media Arts has adopted an interdisciplinary approach to digital media arts that enables students to utilise and develop their existing skills in an environment that encourages both innovation and high quality production.

Taught both here at Lighthouse, and at the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade campus, the MA provides excellent training for artists and arts professionals wishing to seek a career in the creative industries. It includes expert education in the subject areas of interaction design, programming, digital film, installation, public art and interactive art.

Live project work is encouraged so that students gain direct experience and develop valuable links in the digital media industries and wider cultural industries. Students are encouraged to attend Lighthouse’s year–round programme of events and exhibitions, to develop a broad appreciation of digital art and culture. Students tend to become part of the wider social fabric of Lighthouse, and often become involved in our programmes and activities.
